Moisture Retention of Landfilled Solid Wastes

Spatial Simulation of Snow Processes

A Simple Method to Characterize Watershed Soils

Water Use Efficiency: A Case Study In NW Nevada

Landfill Management with Moisture Control
The study presented in this paper commenced in 1972, to test the hypothesis that stabilization of refuse in a sanitary landfill can be accelerated by the controlled application of moisture...

Nuclear Testing of Utility Trench Backfill
For many years, Westchester County municipalities were resigned to the fact that compaction of utility trenches could not be done satisfactorily and that settlement and road failure would...

Stress and Strain in the Lung
The stress-strain relationship of the lung tissue is described. There are two sources of stresses in the lung: that due to elasticity of the material, and that due to surface tension on...

Field Study of Moisture Effects on Slab Movements
A study is made of 69 residential slabs located in an area of expansive clay. The slabs, all built in conformance to FHA specifications, had been in existence for several years. The slabs...

Impact of Rainfall Enhancement on Hydrology
Three watersheds in Kansas were investigated to determine the hydrologic effects of a large-scale rainfall augmentation program. The Kansas Watershed Model was used to compare historical...

Runoff Curve Numbers with Varying Site Moisture
Runoff curve numbers (CN) as used to estimate runoff volume (Q) from storm rainfall (P), are usually modified by handbook methods to account for the influence of watershed wetness. An...

Effects of Moisture and Freeze-Thaw on Rigid Thermal Insulations: A Laboratory Investigation

Effects of Sample Preparation on Sand Liquefaction
The results of undrained stress controlled cyclic triaxial tests indicated that the dynamic strength of saturated sands, remolded to the same density by different compaction procedures,...

Swell Potential Related to Building Performance
Forty structures constructed on a closed site located on the potentially expansive Beaumont Clay formation in Southeast Texas were evaluated for signs of structural distress. The observed...

Summer Moisture-Temperature for Arctic Tundra
Measurements of soil moisture and temperature were made during the summer of 1973 in an arctic tundra region underlain by shallow ice-rich permafrost. Three sites near Barrow, Alaska were...

Coal Pile Leachate—Quantity and Quality Characteristics
A detailed monitoring of an existing coal pile at Ithaca, N.Y. was performed to determine coal pile leachate (CPL) quantity and quality variations. The total quantity of CPL generated...

Soil Moisture Movement by Temperature Gradient
Results from a one-dimensional analytical model and experiments showed that redistribution of moisture due to temperature gradients was maximum when initial saturation was about 20%. Increase...

Load-Induced Strains in Hardened Cement Paste
As an initial stage in a more fundamental and flexible approach to the prediction of load-induced dimensional changes in concrete the elasticity and creep of hardened cement paste were...

Design for Differential Movement in Brick Walls
Varying dimensional instability of juxtaposed building materials in the presence of changing heat, moisture, and stress cause differential strains, inducing stresses that frequently exceed...
